Viper 3500lb Winch on Honda Foreman update

Recommended Posts

I want to thank everyone for the winch advise and suggestions. I ended up with a Viper 3500lb. The instalation wasn't to bad considering I've never installed one before. The wires were all color coded and their web site was very helpfull. I mounted a toggle switch under the seat so a kid or a novice rider can't accidently engage the winch. The winch works great and has way more power than I'll ever need. Any more power and I think it would stretch the frame. The only negative issue, and it's very minor; is the steel cable is a little too long. I'll be cutting off about 5 or 6 feet because it tends to bind up in the spool when almost fully spooled unless it's spooled perfecty even. Again, this is no big deal, the winch works great.

Thanks again to everyone who took time to respond when I asked for help.

Good to hear. How much did you end up paying? Did you buy it on ebay? Any photos?

I edited your thread title a bit, to be more descriptive..:wink:

Ajmboy,

I paid $185.24 total from Moto Alliance web site. I called first to make sure it would fit and asked for the 5% discount. They were very helpfull and curtious. It arrived in about 4 or 5 days. I don't have any pictures, but it's snuggled away and still easy to get at for free spooling. It will hang my bike from a tree, and will pull trees out by the roots or break them off if I hook too high on them. It's already paid for itself twice pulling me out of muck holes in the swamp that were deeper than I thought. I'm very pleased with it.

Thanks for the update! I just checked out the motoalliance web site. Looks like they have some viper plows that are @ $400 with installation kit.

Great review, thanks...

I edited all of the slip-ups so they all say VIPER now instead of Venom.

"....any future plans for the atv???" Only future plans for it right now is to hopefully take a few deer out of the woods with it ! And perhaps a plow.

I know this is an old topic. However I felt I should give an update. First let me say, in no manner, shape, or form am I in any way connected to or affiliated with Viper. I just wanted to give some feedback to Quad Crazy members for all the good advise I've gotten here. The viper winch is STILL going strong. I can't count how many times it's saved this old guys butt. (I'm now 68 yrs old) . Also I'm glad I got a 3500lb I wouldn't get anything smaller.

      I tried to turn my Warn Vantage 2000 into neutral to spool out the line and the clutch is very stiff... I got it.
      When trying to engage it again, it was also very stiff and I ended up breaking off the thumb tab -- so I guess I will need to buy a new gear end housing for that.
      Anyway, is there some maintenance that is needed to keep the clutch turning smoothly or some trick I am missing?

      So I want to bring my Bayou 220 back to the original green, and also replace the decals, which have been painted over. My brother painted everything, and I mean everything. The whole quad is painted in this hideous John deere green, with only some of the black parts not being green. I am repainting the dash, but what should I do to restore the original color? The plastic is infused with the color, so I was thinking maybe  just using something to attempt to dissolve the outer layer of plastic off to restore the green. What do you guys think?

      I'm doing some work at my house this spring and will need to rake out about 1/2 an acre of ground because the fill comes with rocks and such. Has anyone used a rake they like or created something cool that works? Home depot has a Kolpin for $275.

      Hi Folks;
      Has anybody on here installed a winch on a 2003 Magnum 2x4? I am using a Cycle Country adapter plate (only one I could find), but am having a bit of trouble getting it all to fit properly, and am looking for someone that may have done this install and/or may have some pics of the installation.
      Thanks!

      Im working on a old 1987 honda 125 4 wheeler in the school shop. It will start by getting pulled by another 4 wheeler but wont start with the pull start or Electric Start. When you pull start it it tries to start but when you try the electric start it just turns over but doesnt even act like it wants to start. The spark plug is dry and it shoots fuel out of the back(air filter side) of the carb. Weve had the carb off twice and it is complety clean. What are some things we can try?

      I bought a Honda 250sx 1986 but the exhaust is broken. Apparently it's not possible to order a new one. I checked to order one on others compagny but there's noting.
      Do you know which exhaust it's possible to install. Is there a company who sold an exaust to fit on my 250sx.
      Sorry for my english
      Thank you

      Hope someone can help with this one.
      We took our 1984 Honda TRX 200 to the shop and they had it for about 2 weeks before they finally called and said that they had cleaned the carb and changed the battery and that it had started up.
      We went and got it and when we got home it would not start so we called them, they said bring it back in, so we did. They called us the next day and said they changed the spark plug, and that it was running. We went and got it again and it ran when we drove it off the truck.
      We parked it for about an hour because we were going to get ready to go on a ride. Well, it wouldnt start again.
      So we called them and they said the last thing they could do was order a new CDI box and put that on. I decided to just buy it myself, so I didnt have to pay them labor again. We put the new one on today and its still not starting.
      Does anyone have any ideas on what we could check to see what in the world is going on with this thing?
      Please and Thank you
